White sand beaches are boring, guys. Those are where everybody goes. Why not do something original this year and choose a black sand beach this year? Your Instagram followers will probably thank you or whatever. Since you’re probably wondering, black sand beaches get their color from the volcanic activity that takes place nearby, resulting in black basalt. Here are 6 beaches worth checking out.
1. Kaimu Beach, Hawaii
It’s probably not a shock that Punalu’u Beach isn’t merely an amazing black sand beach, it’s one of the best beaches in the world regardless of type. You have a whole lot of options when you come here. You can make your way to the line of coconut trees, relax and soak in the sights of the bay. When you swim, you’ve got the warm ocean water below and cool fresh water on top, or go snorkeling and see if you can spot a mermaid or two.
2. Reynisfjara beach – Iceland
If you dream of visiting another planet, but don’t have the patience to wait for spaceships to be invented, head on over to Reynisfjara Beach. The best time to come is during the sunrise and sunset so that you can take pictures of the scenery. It’s also one of Iceland’s warmest destinations.
